Great Tour!
Nov 2018 • Couples
My husband and I, along with our friends took the private tour, which was given by our guide, Valentina. Valentina was able to get us to skip the line (which was about two to three hours long) and gave us a fantastic tour. She was both knowledgeable about the Vatican and gave us many little tidbits about the Vatican and Sistine chapel that we would not have known had we just toured the facilities by ourselves. The private tour was a bit pricey but definitely worth the extra money.

We did the fast track Vatican Museum Tour with Christina Swain. I highly recommend spending the extra money to do this. It saves time and frustration. Christina was very knowledgeable and was great for English speakers. She got us around the Vatican quickly and efficiently. The Vatican was beautiful and impressive.

Vatican Tour
Oct 2018 • Friends
Fred was our guide. We had 6 people in our group, yet walked way too fast. Although he was very knowledgable, he surprised us by criticizing the Catholic Church while showing us St. Peter's Basilica. Talked much about the riches of the church, the poor, the unfair taxes, and insulted the pope. When the tour was done, we had 15 minutes to grab lunch before hiking back to the bus.
